I really liked Gettysburg (1993/1994?) movie where the 20th Maine Infantry charge downhill at Little Round Top against the Confederates really gives me goosebumps.

I think the march of the Old Guards in Waterloo (1970) also instills the fear and intimation but also the courage in that movie. It's really good.

If epic fantasy takes into account, I'd vote LotR's Battle of Pelennor Fields and Battle of Morannon. It gives epic speeches.

Interstellar's docking scene really pervades me with awe.

I loved that scene. War was so much different back then--drummer boys and music went out with the 19th century. But they must've been a great inspiration. Immediately after that scene, they showed the British almost frantic while the drum beats sounded ominously.

The scene in Bondarchuk's "War and Peace" where on the eve of Borodino the ikon is carried in front of the troops to the top of the hill. I cannot find a clip of just that section, so I'll use this instead...
